"My whole family really liked this. The pork was very tender, and we loved the sauce. I used a bag of frozen onions and peppers and it turned out great. Will definitely make this again soon."

"Liked this recipe, the pork was very tender. Made a few changes, I added some green peppers in place of mushrooms and some red pepper seasoning to give it more of a kick. The oringinal recipe is a little mild so if you like something a little more flavorable add your favorite seasonings."
